Who We Are

Our Story

Milk River

MILK RIVER is Brooklyn’s Newest Multi-Level Restaurant, Lounge and Entertainment Venue featuring a Caribbean and Asian fusion cuisine. Located conveniently near Barclay’s Center/Atlantic Terminal this luxury venue is a neighborhood oasis.

Chef La-Niece Llyew, a Chinese-Jamaican Brooklyn native, named the restaurant after Milk River in Clarendon, Jamaica – a popular hot springs and mineral spa. The name not only represents the direction of the food, it symbolizes cultural enrichment and unity amongst a newly gentrified neighborhood with its warm and welcoming presence.
